How can this be fixed?
If I can avoid it, I don't want to change the whole tail assembly. However, the bearing appears to be machine pressed.

How long will the bearing last if I keep flying it like this?

Thanks for any input.

A little heat will get the bearing out. There should be no reason why you can't change JUST the bearing.

I would change it to avoid it failing and costing you a lot of cash. The bearing and your time will cost less than 20 bucks a crash will cost upwards of 400 bucks Its not pressed its just a snug fit if it dosn't come out easy you can heat it a little but I bet you can push it right out. What you see is the shield that protects the bearings from dirt and hold the grease once all the grease is gone and dirt starts to build it wont last long.Raymond McFaul

The bearing WILL go causing the entire output shaft to wobble at 7000 rpm. This will cause your tail grips and assembly to vibrate and ultimately blow off causing your helicopter to spin uncontrollably to the ground possibly costing you hundreds and hundreds of dollars.

Or you could just change it out in about 5 mins.

Like Jeff said, a little heat and a little pressure will pop that bearing right out.

You can order a complete bearing kit from RC-Bearings.com. That way, you'll have spares for any other bearing that may go bad.

Thanks for all the replies and tips guys!

I'll change out the bearing before I fly this one out again. I hope everyone is having a merry Christmas.

' Got the bearing out, parts ordered. It did need some heat and I used a socket to push it out. Thanks again for the advice guys.

It could just be the shield part of the bearing, just to keep dust / c**p out etc, nothing to with the integrity of the ballrace, but still best to be safe and have no dirt getting there.
